Student Wellbeing

National School Chaplaincy Program

The NSCP is a Commonwealth funded programme administered by the State of Victoria.

THE NSCP Chaplaincy Service aims to support the emotional wellbeing of students by providing pastoral care services and strategies that support the emotional wellbeing of the broader school community.

Pastoral care means looking after the personal needs of students, not just their academic needs, by providing general spiritual and personal support.

At St Joseph’s Primary School the chaplaincy service will be provided by Ms Kelly Hyslop.  Kelly will run a social skills program for all students in our school.  Based on current research relating to wellbeing, we will concentrate on building relationships and helping student to learn positive communication skills.  This process will provide a framework for dealing with emotions and will hopefully groom resilience in our children.  These are important life skills that will impact positively on their wellbeing, now and in the years to come.

Kelly will be in the school on the following days:-

Wednesday – 9:00am – 3:15pm

Thursday – 9:00am – 3:15pm
